Trump WH Tried To Cover-Up President’s Malfeasance By Misusing Gov’t Server
The shocking whistleblower complaint released on Thursday accuses President Donald Trump of “soliciting foreign interference” in the upcoming presidential election and seeking to cover up his misdeeds by hiding the record of his phone call with Ukraine’s president on a “separate computer network.”
The complaint reveals that the whistleblower “heard White House officials sought to ‘lock down’ the transcript of Trump’s now-infamous July 25 phone call” by transferring it to a different system used for highly classified information, according to New York Daily News.
At least six officials are quoted in the complaint.
Larry Pfeiffer, a former CIA chief of staff, told CNN that a separate server “exists for only the most secret of U.S. covert actions, such as the effort to kill Osama bin Laden.”
“It would not have been a place to hide activities of the president,” Pfeiffer
Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire will testify before Congress on Thursday regarding the whistleblower complaint, despite attempts by the White House and Attorney General William Barr to keep him from doing so.
Maguire failed to turn over the complaint to Congress, as is required, after the inspector general deemed it a credible and urgent matter. Instead, Maguire “notified the Department of Justice, which ordered him to keep it under wraps.”
The allegation that Trump’s White House moved the transcript of his phone call with Ukraine’s president to a separate server is wholly ironic, given the president’s obsession with former rival Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server and deleted emails.
